     Only then can the roots can go deep into one's life, just as Paul encourages in chapter two of the book of Colossians.  It is so hard to live a consistent life of faith with all the contrary messages we are exposed to each day. 

     Appeals for our time and money, and the distractions in life demand our limited energy and interest.  We must determine and then pay attention the priorities in our life.  Only then will we hear, believe, be saved, and bring other into contact with the seed containing good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

      Most likely, you’ve heard the parable taught by Jesus of the sower who scattered seed on four different types of soils.  The hard path, the rocky ground, the soil that was full of thorns and weeds, and then the beautiful soil that was cultivated and deep.  

     All four types of ground were given the seed of the gospel and, expectedly, four very different results.  Most likely you know or can call people to mind who resemble these soils – perhaps even loved ones. 

     Thomas Q. adds an interesting slant to the implications of these four types of soil.  He will show that in addition to the soils representing individuals who first hear the gospel – that at times these four types of soil can also be present in the life of faith that a Christian lives. 

     Why do people respond to the Gospel so - differently? 

     How about Predestination? 

     And where does Free Will fit in? 

      This lesson, “The Soil Makes the Difference” has its text is found in the New Testament book of Matthew, chapter 13, verses 1 and 2.






  Parable Series Bible Study


Stories are incredibly important in every culture and era.  Jesus frequently taught through story or parable.  Sometimes relating difficult aspects of the Kingdom of God and issues of faith, to familiar tasks or events the listener is used to.  And it was through these stories or parables that individuals were able to deal with truth, without being overwhelmed by that truth. 

Today, Thomas Q. Robbins continues his lessons in the New Testament book of Matthew and we come to another parable relating to farming.  After Jesus told this parable and then explained it, he asked those present to “Listen!”  We trust you are ready to do just that right now.  It may not be easy though, as Jesus relates some difficult truths to hear.  There are four questions Thomas Q. will ask you to consider as you listen to the message, “Wheat and Weeds.”

Something To Consider

Scripture makes an incredible assertion: "God lives in those who confess that Jesus is the Son of God and those who confess him live in God."  You mean to tell me that "confessing that one believes that God lives in us and we live in God" is all it takes?   That doesn't make sense!  It just doesn't compute in my 21st Century world!  Do you know why you think that?   It’s impossible to accept this beautiful truth if you only use logic or reason.  Such truth can only can be accepted and believed -- made real -- through simple faith.   (I John 4:16)   -Thomas Q
